  1. R.I.P Betty , Wigan Live , April 75 .Never to be forgotten .
  2. Looking for a decent copy of the reissue of this from a few years back , Thanks .
  3. "Ain't no sunshine "/ "Harlem " One of the best double siders EVER . "Harlem " for me is the Number one Blaxploitation/ Northern track . Played "Grandmas hands " live at Carnegie hall ( maxi single )very loud for some reason just two days ago . R.I.P . Bill .
  4. Maybe the 900 doomed copies were rescued somewhere between the trunk and the crusher/remelter ? Several copies of this were available in the record bar at Wigan in the summer of 1980 for £ 25.00. A big play for Rushbrooke at the time .
  5. A member on here called "Donkit" regularly advertises in the miscelaneous sales section that he has stylus/cartridges for sale at reasonable prices ... maybe p.m him , see if he has any ?
  6. Do you need Cartridges as well , or just the stylus ? The cartridge should dictate the type of stylus you are after , if you need both , Concord or Shure brands would both work well.
  7. Remember those times well , it was a kind of third faction at Wigan .Tim Finch mentions it in the Northern soul book , says something like the newies crowd , the mods and us. don't remember any real hostility towards them other that the label " plastic mod" being used . My overall impression was that the place was used as a kind of backdrop to their Quadrophenia fantasy , gangs of guys huddled together in parkas , just thrilled to bits to be there, many slumped over tables by 3am ,just clogged the place up really . Of course some of this crew stuck around , I would imagine the vast majority became New Romantics casuals or whatever by 1981 . Even back then I got a sense that the real northern crowd at this point were the true descendants of the early sixties mods and these 79 guys were little more than these kids Around town today with keep the faith bags and t shirts , after all to be accepted on the scene in the seventies took a lot more than a trip to the tailors . Loved the film by the way , 40 years ago , wow .
  8. Belatedly got round to picking one of these up . Absolutely Wonderful , So Soulful ,Moody vibe . This compilation is a Masterpiece , not felt this way about hearing a CD for years . look forward to volume 2
  9. Sharon Jones. 100 days , top tune and video . Saun and Starr. Hot Shot . Sharon Jones . Tell me . Sharon Jones .Window Shopping .
  10. Junior Walker and Alton Ellis dead heat . if anyone has a decent vg+ copy of the Alton Ellis version for sale , i may be interested at the right price .
  11. Never said he could Sebastian.
  12. Playgirls Love £3.50 , currently on e bay buy it now . loved this record for 50 years .
  13. Seen this on e bay over the weekend for under a fiver , lovely record .
  14. Think maybe the Epic release was to cash in on Donnie Elberts popularity around this time, all his 45s seemed to have different labels , Jay Boy , London , Avco , Mojo etc , i know his Jay Boy 45 was from 66 , maybe if he was living over here and doing shows , this built up the interest/enthusiasm . Am i the only one on here that is not altogether happy/ comfortable with his name ? cant understand why really , am fine with Donnie Hathaway .
  15. Yes , a great record , Always been popular around the Stockport area , thanks in no small part to Brian Walker .
